Malaga

Pedregalejo Beach

sunny 17 °C

We had provisionally booked an apartment for March in an old fisherman's cottage at Pedregalejo Beach, a few kms from Malaga City, for us and a couple of friends. We couldn't work out or find out just how big the apartment was but had an uneasy feeling that it would be really small (even for a fisherman's cottage). So off we went to Malaga - there are several fast buses every day that do the 50-minute run from Marbella to Malaga for about 6 Euros each way. At the large information desk at Malaga Bus Station, we asked where the number 11 local bus left for Pedregalejo; the response (as has been the case in several tourist offices) was an expansive wave of an arm in some sort of general direction. Well, that direction had 5 roads and it took us about 30 minutes to actually find out which road we should take. The bus ride to Pedregalejo was cheap at 1.30 Euros and took about 20 minutes. The beaches stretching out from Malaga are really quite nice and Pedregalejo was no exception, so "fingers crossed" we fronted up to the cottage. It was a very small 2-story house and the downstairs apartment was tiny, barely enough room for 2 people let alone 4 (and we had explained in emails that there would be 4 adults). So that was it. We had lunch at a beach-side cafe, tried to find other accommodation and then took a bus back to Malaga and then the fast bus back to Marbella
